I was very fortunate to meet Paul and Amos and others at the Digital
Creations booth LinuxWorld in NYC, and was blown away by the planning and
development going into Zope, especially at the metadata level.  We
librarians are always looking out for better tools for leveraging the
power of standardized metadata systems, and Zope's moving in this
direction as fast as anything else going, particularly in the new CMF.

Paul and Ken (who both admit to being closet librarians) graciously
agreed to an interview for oss4lib to help bring these new metadata
developments to light for the community of fellow librarians interested in
better metadata management.  The interview is available here:


While it is largely geared to our metadata-happy community, perhaps others
will find it a worthwhile read as well.  Thanks to Paul and Ken's
responsiveness and extensive examples it hopefully will help explain where
Zope can help take us with content description and management among so
many other applications.
